the implementation of the notorious federal health care law. >> reporter: ken cuccinelli the personification of the tea party. the polls say he is going to lose. his demise in virginia could be a sign of things to come. >> all right, joining me now is congressman gerry connolly, a democrat from virginia. congressman, thank you for taking some time tonight. i want to get to that election in virginia and what it says about where the country is and where the country is going, it's only five days away. but first i want to start at the basic issue of the poll numbers for the president today, which made so much news today. you heard that repetition in the package we just played there. george bush territory, the idea that here in his fifth year as president, president obama now falling to a level about where george w. bush was at this point in his fifth year. what do you make of the numbers you're seeing for the president right now, just as a democrat, as a member of his party, what do you attribute it to and are you worried about it? >> you know, i think every president has a rough patch. i'm old
challenger, ken cuccinelli. roanoke college finds mcauliffe with as much of a 15-point lead but quinnipiac poll has him leading by four points. in an e-mail sent to supporters thursday, mcauliffe made it very clear, don't get comfortable and don't sit this one out. mcauliffe wrote to his supporters, in off year elections like this when tea party voters turn out more reliably than democrats. for 45 years, the political party that controls the white house has lost our governor's race the next year. in 2009, fewer than 40% of virginia voters cast a ballot for governor, despite the fact that nearly 70% voted in the presidential election the year before. there's a lot at stake in the state of virginia, no question about it. ken cuccinelli has spent his entire career as an elected official, trying to roll back any progress on women's reproductive rights. cuccinelli's running mate for lieutenant governor, e.w. jackson, has clearly defined himself as an extremist home phone. folks, this is not an election day the country want to miss. get out and vote in virginia. joining me tonight for the "rapid
outright since he led exactly one back in mid july, ken cuccinelli being down by four in october represents an epic surge, a cuccinelli surge which sounds like an fcc violation. and he might actually be closing the gap. what does that mean? john stanton is joining us washington bureau chief at buzz feed. thank you for being here tonight. >> good to be here. >> do you see a way that ken cuccinelli surprises everyone and scratches out a win here? >> yeah, sure. if his staff lets him out of the box they're keeping him in, yes, sure, i think that would allow him to start talking and say things that would probably hurt his candidacy. other than some major gaffe on his part, no, i don't think, he's looking at a win at this point. >> at this point, so much of the attention on sort of what's wrong and interesting about this race is how people seem to be planning to vote against one of the other candidates they're planning to vote at all. everybody expects low turnout on both sides. said they're not endorsing anybody and they think people should write in a guy who is not running and has no chance. >
polls show mcauliffe several points ahead of the republican attorney general ken cuccinelli. so why bring the big guns in at this point? well, to rally the base and make sure democratic precincts show up on election day. joining me now is politico's alex isenstadt. an article in politico today really dives deep into this talking about the turnout of black voters. he doesn't need to match obama's performance but the dropoff cannot be too steep. we saw the president there hammering that point home repeatedly today. i want to play another portion of what the president had to say. take a look. >> the real reason you're here is that the single redeeming virtue of political extremism is people show up on the other side. so are you going to show up? this whole election is about which virginia shows up. >> about which virginia shows up. alex, explain when we talk about the youth vote, and as we dissect that apart, how important it is for young african-americans and college students to turn out on november 5th. >> right. well, it's a week away from the election. and for terry mcauliffe parti
auliffe is several points ahead of his republican rival, ken cuccinelli. the question is what it will lock like on november 5th. he brought in the big dog, long time friend and former president you may know by the name of bill clinton. boost turn out particularly among african-american voters in college towns. on sunday, clinton kicked off a four-day, nine-city tour of the state with mcoffive. casting cuccinelli as divicive. he urged democrats not to take anything for granted. >> the one political virtue of extremism is this. if you can really get people all hot and bothered and their inside is in knots, full of anger and steam coming out of their ears instead of a light bulb going off in their brains, they will vote. they will show up every time. >> republicans inside washington run against health care and republicans outside washington run against washington, democrats everywhere are running against the tea party. >> just recently my opponent, ken cuccinelli was campaigning at a gathering of his supporters with ted cruz. he refused to stand up for virginia and against ted cruz's shut down str
, this is amazing. terry mcauliffe, the democrat, is outspending the republican ken cuccinelli by 25-1 on the air waves. >> we read so much stuff in the middle of the night, so i never know if i'm dreaming or not. did i see a poll in the middle of the night that said ken cuccinelli is tightening the race in a poll or two or not? >> tightening, sure. we have talked to both campaigns. there was a poll a couple days ago that showed it much tighter. the cuccinelli internal polls do not show it tightening that much. the campaigns believe it's an outlier that terry mcauliffe is cruising to an easy win. you never know. they go to the horse races because they come in and close the gap. >> terry mcauliffe seems like an outsider for the state of virginia. look at ken cuccinelli, who is very, very conservative. some would say too conservative right now for the state. these are the type of races in off years where you wake up and you go holy cow, that just happened? >> there's a third party candidate. newspapers supporting none of the three. it is a wild situation. >> it is a wild situation. do a lot of the
in new jersey and ken cuccinelli in virginia, the two republicans in the running have a lot to tell us about just what kind of republican can get elected these days. now, on the one hand, you have christie, who, if recent polls showing him clobbering his democratic opponent, barbara what's her name by a 19-point margin are any indication, it's the kind who wins elections. correction, the kind of republican who can win elections in a blue state that gave president obama 58% of the vote in 2012. now, on paper, chris christie is as conservative as they come. opposition to reproductive rights? check. he defunded planned parenthood and refused to fund new jersey state family planning centers. standing strong against marriage equality? check. he recently backed down from his efforts to block same-sex marriage from moving the forward in new jersey, but only after a long, long fight to keep it from happening. advancing economic austerity policies, check. opposing organized labor, check. suppressing votes by politicking a plan for early voting, uh, check. slashing public education budgets, chec
that the cuccinelli loss was because he was too muted and because of the advisers didn't let ken be ken or does the prevailing view hold that when you hold the center, you are doomed to lose? swing states? the guy who went for a non-tea party strategy is taking a page from george w. bush's playbook trying to prove electability to national republican donors and republicans across the country and hope he ends up on wednesday morning the front runner of the establishment wing for 2016. the campaign is not hiding the message. look at the release called blue jersey. in the overwhelming democratic garden state, no republican candidate has earned higher than 50% of the vote in 28 years. >> for the republican party that lost last year in the presidential election, for the republican party that lost seats in the u.s. senate, for the republican party that has been disspirited for the last number of months, we need to show the republican party in america that we can win again. guess where they will be watching on tuesday night to see if we win. right here in new jersey. they will be watching us. >> christ
is going to be and how bad the loss is for ken cuccinelli. the story behind chris christie is going to be huge. you may have picked somebody for the short list on that martinez ticket. good signs that the party is waking up and seeing that we have to make big changes. >> you said something about mainstream and i was picking out the four points and you can feel the narrative developing. we will have a republican primary and a special election taking place in tuesday in al bam a. tea party versus non-tea party. this is a place where the tea party normally should win and i argue the expectations say the tea party is the place to lose. if they don't, it adds to the narrative. mainstream hasn't stopped the tea party before if mainstream groups are going to kiss of death. how do you prevent that from being the case in the primaries in 2014? >> i think you are right about the tea party, but i don't think the business community and mainstream republicans have really organized effectively and funded effectively in an effort to recruit mainstream candidates against the candidates and do it ea

moving around the country. scott walker will join republican ken cuccinelli on the final days and senator rand paul will be back in the old dominion after what can be described as a less than stellar week. he is sort of a tea party guy who is more acceptable to the establishment got this front page treatment in the national journal. this week he has been trying to beat back plagiarism charges. >> to disagree on how you footnote things and people do it differently in an academic paper than they do in a public speech. if we presented any of these for publication that had footnotes and a speech if people don't take the time to footnote things. it was clear that the plot line was not something i created. i department claim i created the movie. that's what is absurd. the plot line belongs to one person. the screen writer and i gave him credit for that. >> the office told nbc this. in the course of a 25-minute speech, he described the 34r09 of a movie and attributed it to the primary sources and no way saying it was his own thoughts or ideas. it has been submitted for academic tubication it wou
